Donald Hank: “Big Sodomy” Wants To “Silence” Cameron

Jim Burroway

July 9th, 2007

I rarely read WorldNetDaily, an omission I intend to correct immediately. I almost missed this interesting nugget, “Will ex-gays bring down ‘Big Sodomy’?” The title alone is worth the price of admission, which, of course, is free.

donaldhank.jpgDonald Hank (who I’ve never heard of before, but there’s his picture in case you’re curious) is all excited that a gay activist by the name of Mike Glatze (who I also had never heard of before) has decided to switch teams and become ex-gay. And Hank believes that somehow this unknown activist is supposed to be some sort of body-blow against the whole homosexual-industrial complex that Hank has dubbed “Big Sodomy.”

Frankly, I don’t know what the fuss is all about. I’ve been rather bemused by the reaction to Glatze’s homo-hostile broadside. He’s not the most interesting anti-gay writer, nor is he the most talented. And I also can’t help noticing that Glatze is trying to stretch his fleeting fifteen minutes of fame into a sixteenth minute by hitting virtually every web site that mentions his name with either an email or a long-winded comment (or both).

But enough about that. The passage that I found most interesting wasn’t Glatze’s energetic and ongoing attempts to draw attention to himself, but this:

Of course, the promulgation of knowledge and data concerning the link between alternative sex and disease is hampered by the bullying tactics of the elite. Thus, only a few facts are known at all to some of the public (such as the results of a study in Scandinavia showing that men in same-sex marriages die 24 years earlier than their counterparts in the general population), and these facts aren’t mainstream, thanks to the media blackout on this issue and the muzzling of opponents under color of law. And that, in turn, is thanks to the activists.

Sure enough, these “facts” aren’t mainstream, but not because of a media blackout or any muzzling by “Big Sodomy.” The facts aren’t mainstream simply because they are utterly ridiculous and demonstrably false. These statistics comes straight from Paul Cameron’s latest oeuvre, “Federal Distortion of Homosexual Footprint,” which I analyzed in detail last April. Cameron’s actions surrounding that paper led to his condemnation by the Eastern Psychological Association just a few weeks later.

But now we have Donald Hank — whoever he is — adding his name to a long roster of those who rely on the discredited “science” of a man who credits the Nazis for “curing” homosexual . And unfortunately, that roster keeps growing. These are the people who continue to spread Paul Cameron’s bogus statistics, despite his censure by four different professional associations and his draconian “solutions” for the homosexual problem. Does Hank also agree with Cameron’s manifesto?

I would love to hear Hank’s thoughts on this.

That was a WordNutDaily “Exclusive Commentary?” Must pay them in peanuts.

If gays should sue anyone it should be Michael Glatze, no matter what side the fraud should be on.

On a side note, wouldn’t “Big Sodomy” be a great name for a band?

Jim,

Your link was to Wayne’s site, but I didn’t see Glatze trying to dredge up more self focus there. Was that a link typo?

I think you may have wanted his latest ramblings at WorldNetDaily. Ugh, this guy’s writing abilities are… let me be generous and just say that they are somewhat less than what one would expect from a magazine editor.

I posted that before Glatze’s latest screed appeared on WND.

The link was to Wayne’s post in which he was to appear with Mike Glatze on CNN’s Paula Zahn Now. However, that show was cancelled or postponed since my post went up.

Ahhh. I get it. Am I the only one who thinks his 15 minutes are up?

Welcome to my club, Jim Burroway.
I never heard of you either.
This is just one of the many sites I have visited that critiqued my column.
Your chef d’oeuvre is typical, lambasting one of the few people who cares enough about gays to try to help.
The people in the “movement” just sit around and watch people die, claiming someone will save you one day by inventing a vaccine that cures AIDS. Meanwhile, eat, drink and be…er, gay.
That is the REAL homophobia!
You guys truly hate yourselves and each other.

Donald,

Just a quick question: do you care at all if the “facts” you quote are true?
